The publication of this book coincides with the cresting of the latest
wave of public debate about Alfred Kinsey and the celebrated Kinsey Reports
that has washed over America since the late 1940s. A feature film, two recent
biographies, and a public controversy about Kinsey’s methods and personal
sexuality have once again brought attention to the unusual scientist whose
original and exhaustive surveys of male and female sexuality made him a celebrity
in postwar America.
